Premiere: Daiikon – Crise Collective [Sheik ’N’ Beik]

Sheik ‘N’ Beik, the iconic New York City-based record label known for its eclectic and influential releases, is kicking off the summer with ‘Crise Collective’, its electrifying 15th release from Swiss sonic wizards Daiikon. Since 2008, Sheik ‘N’ Beik’ has been an essential part of the global house and techno scene, with the record label joining the already revered event series in 2014 bringing a diverse mix of artists offering fresh sounds for its devoted fan base.
Hailing from Geneva, Daiikon have been underground electronic trailblazers since the late 90s. Their journey began on the earliest online radio stations before they took to the world’s most esteemed stages as DJs. Since 2009, Daiikon have used their residency with Sheik ‘N’ Beik as an expressive, creative sanctuary. Meticulously crafting a sound that transcends the ordinary, they expertly merge meaningful melodies and hypnotic grooves, summoning a symphony of earthly frequencies through their radical and intuitive creations. Their music is an intimate expression of themselves and what they live, breathe and feel, inviting listeners to embark on their own emotional odyssey.
Prepare to be captivated by the pulsating energy of ‘Crise Collective’ with its stripped-down sound featuring thunderous kick drums and warped synths entwined with a kaleidoscope of percussive elements and mind-bending acid undertones.
Remix virtuoso Norm Talley is the guardian of Detroit’s deep house legacy, and he proves why with his masterful reinterpretation of ‘Crise Collective’. As the guiding force behind the esteemed Upstairs Asylum label and a figure with an illustrious discography that includes labels like FXHE, Talley casts his spell on the original and transforms it into a mesmerising and deep rolling cut with cascading Detroit chords impeccably fused with razor-sharp hi-hats which slice through the hypnotic groove as subtle vocal nuances dance up top to create sonic brilliance.
The final track, ‘Beach Parade’, is an enchanting six-minute house jam with scintillating synth sequences that bring about the feeling of cosmic energy. This deep-cut gem will guide the dance floor into a euphoric frenzy with its radiant melodic energy and rubbery bass, creating an irresistible force.
Once again, Sheik ‘N’ Beik delivers a cultured expedition into house music, unearthing sonic treasures that resonate with the very essence of our souls, so brace yourself for Crise Collective, a journey that will elevate your senses.
